Letter: Haiku Stairs demolition puts politics over people

People hiked Haiku Stairs for years without issue, following the path. Steel steps and handrails provided a safe, stable platform while protecting the aina from erosion until the stairs closed after taxpayer-funded repairs. Security continued to divert hikers making their way up, which bothered local residents. Still, the Kaneohe neighborhood board did door-to-door surveys in Haiku Valley, which showed that a majority supports saving the stairs. Some people grew up enjoying it in their backyard.
